Interesting times

The Observer reports that the Lib Dems are planning to drop or downplay their historic commitment to joining the euro. Vince Cable seems to be the main man behind bthe move.

He says calling for entry is like trying to swim after a ship which has left the harbour, and points out to boot that the one size fits all interest rate has caused horrendous property bubbles in places like Spain.

But not everyone is happy. It adds up to a plan to come fifth in the euro elections, says Chris Davies MEP.

As it's Sunday: I say unto you that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth more than over ninety and nine just persons which need no repentance.

Anyway, who wants to "swim after a ship" when you can see rats jumping off it?
